You do not have to make a recipe card holder. You can make this cute little chef bear to use in a layout, on a card, as a tag etc. Please leave a comment at the bottom and let me know if you like this kind of a workshop and if you are participating~ thank you
You'll need White, Black and Rusty Brown Cardstock.
Made by Corrine Paul
Bear Pattern Used: Little Scraps of Heaven Designs
Chef Uniform designed by Corrine Paul
*6 inch Jumbo Clothespin
You do not need this to make the chef bear.
I bought this one at Hobby Lobby for $2.33.
*Small Hole Punch
*Basic Kit: Scissors, adhesive, cutting system, pencil, white marker, ink or chalk.
For small projects like this I cut my paper in smaller pieces.
I usually rub a pencil across the back of the pattern then transfer the pattern to my cardstock. I cut on the outside of the line to leave room to customize the fit of each piece.
I design a chef hat and shirt. I like my pieces to overlap for gluing purposes and to have room to customize a pattern.
I ink like other people chalk. I like the look of ink better than the look of chalk but either or both are fine. It's a personal preference.
I lay everything out before I start gluing. I cut the legs longer than need so I can fit it to the Jumbo Clothespin. Once I like what I have I start gluing. SOMETIMES I trace around my pattern before I glue so I have a template to follow.
I used a small oval hole punch to make the eyes and a tiny hole punch to make the white "twinkle" in his eyes.
Designing a Wooden Spoon
Wooden Spoon looks good~ LOL
Designing a Rolling Pin
Rolling Pin and Wooden Spoon look nice~
I was going to give him pink cheeks but decided he didn't need them
Double checking to make sure how he will fit on the Jumbo Clothespin
I want space at the bottom so the paper doesn't fray or wear down when sitting on a kitchen counter and used to hold recipes.
His hat looks too plain and so does his chef uniform. I will have to come up with something to make him look more like a chef.
I used my white marker to highlight his shoes and nose.
While I decide what to do to make him more interesting I go ahead and trace around him on my chipboard. I am going to attach the chipboard to the back to give some stability.
I added a strip of white between the legs to cover the chipboard color
That looks pretty good and I can trim where ever the chip board shows once it is attached.
Making sure I am attaching it right.
I attached it to the Jumbo Clothespin
Making sure it looks right before the glue dries.
He still looks really plain but NICE~
AH HA!! He needs a name tag and some buttons. I used a tiny hole punch for the buttons and I just hand cut a tiny name tag.
I could not decide how to give his chef hat some dimension so
I layered the top and I think it really did the job.
I am hoping you can print this. They are both the same copy. One is in portrait and the other is in landscape. (I'm new at this, forgive me)
I am only including the chef uniform because I do not have permission to include any LSHD patterns for FREE.
